(my carts full, pending splitter necessity info)
Splitter is only for the high beam selonid in the new projector it sends a signal to open the shield down to enable the high beam function. The splitter just makes it a plug and play so you dont have to splice into your high beam wires, for the extra 5 bucks its well worth it.
Where's Black Friday when ya need it...
that 25% would look pretty good right now huh, also google TRS codes or ask them on facebook sometimes they will give out one.
Do you think it will be easy removing the stock projectors for this set-up? I haven't thought of doing this before but hey, what the heck right? Let us know how it goes with the removal process, good luck.
I will post a picture
Well, since @nwscoobie
says that it will take a little effort to get the OEM projectors out, I imagine the biggest hurdle is working any brackets out while you're pulling the projector out. I've done a retrofit on my prior HHR and if it doesn't involve cracking open the housing then I'm all for it and I know the effort will be worth it. I figure once I get one out, the other will be much easier. Getting the bumper/housings out will probably be the biggest pain.
I will post a picture of the projector to show how to split it apart in the housing to remove very painlessly
To me the bumper doesn't look that bad to do, however, the fender flares I have will suck being held on with tape and all. Guess I'm on the lookout for a good 3M tape. The stock projectors coming out will probably take a bit of wrestling, but with a little luck, maybe not be so bad. I'm ordering my setup next week so I'll have it for when the weather starts to warm up. My biggest worry is the possibility of new parts being put in then something not working correctly
Taking out the projectors will take about 3-5 minutes for the first one and 30 seconds for the second one. There are three screw holding the projector to the housing, remove those 3 and the projector will move freely. Also you will need to use the level adjustment for the headlight to get to the top screw easier you will see when you try and remove it.
There is a little plastic retainer on the projector that you can pop off in the headlight and the projector can come apart in the housing making it a breeze to remove. I learned this on the second headlight.
Hmmm do I want to be the one to try it on my canyon...should be the same projector right?
Yes they should be identical, a guy on another forum sent me a picture on a canyon headlight and it looked the same, I cant guarantee it 100% since I have a Colorado
